MilSuite for the Army
Bringing Social Media to the Department of Defense

Symbolic Systems partnered with the Department of Defense (DoD) to create a secure version of the public social networking site, Facebook®, for military personnel that allow users' similar functionality within a secure environment.

Providing a social networking application within a secure firewall allows users to discuss, collaborate and share sensitive information without compromising security. Symbolic developers and software engineers worked with the DoD's MilTech's Information and Web2.0 Division to develop the site. MilTech is the Army’s information technology group that is working to integrate security solutions across the various Army networks and communications platforms.

Symbolic professionals designed MilBook, a Web2.0 tool, that is part of a larger secure networking application known as MilSuite. MilSuite includes a secure wiki (milWiki) and blog (MilBlog) for DoD personnel. MilBook allows users to collaborate in a protected environment and provides a forum for military personnel to connect, share ideas and information across the Armed Services.

MilBook launched with little marketing and within the first month had over 5,000 users and has grown to over 20,000 users. In 2009, it received the top Army award for knowledge management – a category III: Technology Dimension Army Knowledge Management Award from the Army’s Chief Information Officer.
